Partner with PACE
Macquarie's award-winning PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program provides opportunities for students to apply learning in practice. Based on the principle of reciprocity, students contribute to the partner organisation and the community it serves while gaining valuable industry experience and skills.
Macquarie's unique PACE program is fully integrated across all academic disciplines. It's scale, scope and diversity sets it apart from the practical programs offered at other Universities. What's more, PACE has been shown to demonstrably improve the employment outcomes of Macquarie graduates. That's why we've been awarded the 2017 Australian Financial Review Higher Education Award for Employability.
Our 2500+ partner organisations from local, regional and international spheres span all sectors of the economy and society across private, public, community-based and not-for-profit sectors.
As our partner you benefit from the immediate opportunities PACE provides to:
- meet your objectives
- create a talent pipeline
- build your professional networks
- engage in research collaborations
- inspire and mentor future professionals
Benefits of PACE
PACE is mutually beneficial for students, partner organisations and Macquarie University. As a PACE partner you get to know Macquarie better and have the opportunity to connect with highly motivated, capable, and work ready students as well as an innovative group of academics and researchers and a community of creative and inspiring partner organisations.
How PACE works
The success of PACE relies on creating and maintaining channels of open and honest communication and expectations between partner, student and Macquarie University.
A safe and fair environment
